The High Court of Justice rejected Wednesday the petitions filed by residents of Khan al-Ahmar, a Bedouin community near Jerusalem, against the evacuation of the village.
The temporary injunction forbidding the evacuation expire within a week, after which the evacuation can begin.
In response, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman tweeted:
"Khan al-Ahmar will be evacuated!I congratulate the judges of the High Court of Justice for a courageous and obvious, in light of an orchestrated hypocrisy of Abbas, the Left and European countries. No one is above the law. No one will prevent us from exercising our sovereignty and our responsibility as a state."
